If it’s one thing we all know as a society, it’s that New York has its fair share of furry little rodents. On Monday, the video of one specifically motivated rat ended up circulating across the internet, showcasing the critter’s disciplinary focus in both claiming and maintaining a nice sized slice of pizza for a feast to end all feasts. Dubbed “Pizza Rat,” soon nerds across the web — and dare I speculate, the world? — have pointed to this masterful rodent’s actions as a sign that Leonardo and the rest of his Ninja Turtle gang actually DO exist.
The rumblings of this little vermin’s actions are still being felt, yet, here we are a day later and it looks like “Pizza Rat” has quickly become old news. How is this possible, you ask? Well, ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to “Milkshake Squirrel.” The above video comes to us from Mashable’s The Watercooler and captures the actions of one rather thirsty squirrel in a trash can. Here, this little guy (or girl?) is obviously on a mission to get that sugary chocolate goodness — also known as a Shake Shack milkshake — into its furry little face. If anything, this video is a reminder that one man’s trash is another squirrel’s treasure. Or something.
